Here's a message from The Kids Cancer Project

Thank you to donors and fundraisers who made their Fitz’s Challenge ride even more meaningful by supporting research into childhood cancer. Funds raised this year have reached almost $64,000 and donations are still coming in. Since 2009 over $254,000 has been raised through the Fitz's Challenge.

While your challenge is over, the challenge to cure childhood cancer continues. Your participation in the Fitz’s Challenge will directly help The Kids' Cancer Project in supporting The Murdoch Children’s Research Institute research for Adolescents and Young Adults with cancer.

In Australia, teenagers and young adults with cancer have no more chance of surviving today than they did 20 years ago. If diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) after the age of 15, the survival rate is just 1 in 2. This research will investigate why these older kids are so much more likely to lose their lives.

Childhood cancer remains the single greatest cause of death from disease in Australian children, with three children dying from the condition a week.
